Are You Tired of Neules Yet?

You may be tired of seeing neules, so I decided to post the rest of the neules that I have cut in the past month. This is a scene of Bethlehem. This is the one I used for my trade.

This is one that was fun to design and cut. I used the red paper as background to liven in up when I scanned it. I was tired of the gloomy black.

Here is the last one. I cut this just a few days ago for a gift for a friend. I hope that she likes it. My husband thinks that the sheep look like maggots.

These are a couple of pictures of the neules hanging in my front room. I strung a string from the curtain to the opposite side of the room. Then, I hung the neules from the string. I like the way they look like they are floating. I think I should have hung them just a little bit higher though because my seven year old already manged to take a swing at one and ripped it down. Fortunately, I was able to rehang it without too much damage. She promised not to do that again.

Here they are again at another angle. Merry Christmas!

I love mine! Thank you! It reminds me of the time I got to spend at Shepherd's Field outside Bethlehem when I went on Study Abroad. And I don't think the sheep look like maggots. I was wondering how I should display it. I like yours hanging on a string, but I think I'm going to find some pretty paper and frame mine (to protect it from my kids :-). Thank you, thank you!

Wow, I love these!!! You did such a great job!! I tend to stick with square/rectangle cuts as I am afraid of botching and making a very imperfect circle. I think I need to get past that concern and get into making different shaped cuts. You did a very fine job. Each is so brilliant.
